BLAGOVESHCHENSK, November 15, 16:08 /ITAR-TASS/. Ten houses for people affected by floods in Russia’s Far East will be built before the end of the year in the Amur region on funds raised during a telethon by Channel One Television.
All in all more than 500 million rubles were raised, the commercial director of Channel One, Petr Shepin, said on Friday while examining the sites in two settlements where the houses would be built.
“Channel One itself was choosing among construction companies, there was a tender. Attention was paid to construction terms, quality, and reviews. We had a lot of offers from foreign companies,” the head of the Blagoveshchensk district, Sergei Adamenko, said.
“As a result, we chose a Krasnoyarsk plant. Prefabricated modules will be arriving from Krasnoyarsk, and the plant’s branch in the Amur region will engage in construction work,” he added.
Adamenko said these ten houses would be turn-key ready. “Unlike a prefabricated house commissioned in the Arkharino district of the Amur region, Channel One’s houses will have all modern conveniences, and bath and toilet equipment,” he said.
A total of 110 people need new housing in the Blagoveshchensk district after the floods. Meanwhile, four house trailers have been brought to the district’s Grodekovo settlement.
“It is like a hostel room, and people will not spend the whole winter there. However, this is an alternative to a long-term permanent accommodation centre,” Adamenko said. He said people whose houses could be repaired after the flood were staying in these house trailers. A total of 299 people are living in long-term accommodation centres in the Blagoveshchensk district at the moment.
